4 Pieces of Travel Gear for Apple Users

If you’re someone who is an Apple User, which we’re assuming you are, and you travel there are a ton of interesting gadgets and gizmos that can make your trip easier. We found a few cool items that we’ve either used ourselves or have found on the internet that may make your vacation or business trip run more smoothly.

1.)   Plugs and outlets are always difficult to find when waiting to board a plane. It seems there are very few except for charging stations where every passenger appears to be waiting in line for a quick fix of power. Fab.com has found an incredible solution and one you can’t live without if you’re an avid flyer. This innovative tool allows you to double the outlets and gives you two USB plugins but only uses one electrical outlet. While someone else may have a plug at the top with an iPhone or Smartphone, you can maximize the power without hogging up four different plugs. The perfect solution to an everyday situation. The best part is it folds right up and can fit into a purse or travel bag without taking up a ton of room.

2.)   Next, if you’re someone who tends to turn into a ‘butter finger’ once inside of an airport terminal or a bus, then you won’t want to miss out on the Anti-Drop Ring for your smartphone. The cool thing is you can buy this accessory right from Amazon for less than $20. You can also use the sturdy ring to prop up your iPhone for a little Netflix viewing.

3.)   In addition to what’s hot for your iPhone, things items such as your iPad tend to take a bit of a beating while traveling. One cool item found on http://www.builtny.com/ which is a super cool website that shows a ton of rad bags and totes that aren’t only super creative carryall’s they’re made with an ultra-sturdy material called Neoprene that can be stored in the freezer. They have the perfect carrying case for iPads that protect the surface. An excellent companion for any expedition.

4.)   Likewise, to the iPhones and iPads, your laptop is a must have. However, these devices are knocked around just while going through security much less shoved into your luggage or bags. The Oxford multi-functional luggage with storage bag is an excellent way to prevent anything from happening to your computers and other devices. One of the best features for this suitcase is its ability to be carried on top of other luggage, but it can also be used as a backpack or shoulder bag making this item super-versatile. You need to use this tool for every business deal.

So, these are just a few of our favorite ideas for the Apple traveler to keep in mind. Your next trip won’t be lost fighting for outlets or worrying about the condition of your devices after you land. If you have a favorite tool feel free to share with us, we’d like to hear your comments.

iCloud Benefits for Apple Devices

If you’re like most people in today’s fast-paced electronic age, you understand the dilemma of having to manage multiple devices throughout the day. One minute you’re checking your iPhone, the next, your iPad, all while adding content on your iMac creating a whirlwind of potential chaos. With as many devices you must be responsible for, it’s inevitable that things will get lost. In this week’s blog, we focus on iCloud benefits for those who are Apple was driven that will help you see the light at the end of the iCloud tunnel.

There’s nothing worse than being in a meeting only to be lost when finding an accurate photo, document or anything else creative. iCloud allows you to keep track of all these items in one spot that can be accessed from any device under the sun.

The other benefit to using the iCloud is storage. Your iPhone or iPad is only capable of storing so much. When it becomes crowded with your data, especially images and video, those files eat storage space like crazy causing your devices to be slower and potentially crashing. The concept of the iCloud allows you to keep these items tucked away neatly without eating up all your space.

Since we’re on the subject about storage space, let’s discuss sharing files. Even small videos can be difficult to transfer or share if they’re over 2GB. You’d be surprised how quickly that amount of data can deny access. When using iCloud, your data can be shared without long wait times for down and uploading. It just makes perfect sense to use this solution for transferring files.

Losing your device or replacing can cause a lot of stress for those who take a lot of photos or hold onto valuable data. You’ll never have to be anxious again as you’ll always have access to what you store on the iCloud. Even if you replace your computer, you’ll still safely store your favorite pics and music without a worry.

The most important thing to remember is the iCloud is set up for peace-of-mind. By ensuring you’ll never lose any of your data or necessary files, you’ll never have to be concerned about losing anything again. If that’s not worth its weight in gold, we’re not sure what is!

First, let’s remember to listen with the new Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones. Apple added the super lovely rose gold finish to match up with your Macbook or Macbook pro. Priced to sell at $299.95 these sound crushing units will blow your mind with a battery life of 40 hours. The best part is they will charge back up in only 5-minutes, and they are paired with Siri. How cool is that?

Next, when your Macbook isn’t being used, you can now get it out of the way with the BookArc Stand. This sturdy piece of equipment can create more desk space while still allowing you to get easy access to your laptop. Be sure to check it out at the Apple store.

In addition to storing your computer when it’s not in use, you can now have matching hard drives to keep your theme going with gold, space gray or rose gold to stay consistent with your favorite color preference. The G-Technology comes in 1TB-GDrive with USB configurations to back up any of your favorite files.

The Coastal Computers Reporter: Real Time Apple News and Updates

What’s better than being generous and giving back to your community? The answer is making donations quick, easy and efficiently with Apple Pay. Per the website, Third Sector, people can now make payments to their favorite non-profit or cause without having to add your data multiple times. Apple Pay is taking the guess work out of being charitable, and one of the best features allows you to give on the spot without filling out long forms or going through a multitude of prompts. Way to go Apple Pay!

Next, ‘Hot off the Apple-Press’! Apple told reporters at the BBC the following statement “The technology built into today’s iPhone represents the best data security available to consumers, and we’re always working to keep it that way,” spokesperson. Does this mean that Apple insists on providing the most secure system on the planet? We think it does at least so far. What was also interesting is Microsoft’s response was “are aware of the report in question” and “urgently considering the matter.” Don’t you just love how this issue has raised the bar, and the company giving us the most confidence when it comes to security remains the same…Apple.

While we’re sad to announce this, we think it’s best to hold off jumping into the iPhone 8. The good news is there’s rumor a different model is on the horizon. While we haven’t been given any new updates on the release or whereabouts this next model is we are staying on top of the latest. However, we hear great news about the iPhone 6 with an updated 32 gigabytes of storage. The gold finish is swanky making this an excellent upgrade all around. Keep up without blog to find out more details.

Look for April 4th being a big day for the company as they will be scheduled to have a release event for both the iPad Pro 2 and iPad Mini 5. While the feds at Apple are keeping tight-lipped, we do know this is a long overdue expectation for the many users. The event will take place in the renovative Steve Jobs Theater which we think is cool. Nonetheless, we are anxious just like everyone else to hear about the innovations.

These are just a few of the tidbits of hot news we recently learned. Feel free to leave your comments or topics you’d like for us to cover. We are your best computer ninjas in Boca Raton.

Gaming isn’t just a hobby any longer. There are many people out there that would agree that playing your favorite games on the Internet and Computer are big business and nothing to fool around with. That is unless you find the perfect accessories to use while playing things like World of Warcraft and Civilization. In this week’s blog, we uncover a few we thought you’d like to see featured for MAC computers.

One of the biggest accessories and a ‘must have’ for any MAC gamer is a good mouse. It’s a little hard to maneuver through tunnels if your device is too slow. We like the Razer Mamba and Razer Naga Epic Gaming Mouse. Both devices offer sleek designs that look ultra-cool whenever they’re in use and even when they aren’t. While these aren’t your least expensive tools for gaming pros, they are important if you want to play and take the game seriously.

Next, what good is a mouse if you don’t have a comfortable chair to sit in? Simply do a Google or search on Pinterest and you’ll see the multitude of chair selections for every game room. Even though you can pair these up with any brand computer, we feel you’ll get the best enjoyment when pairing with a MAC gaming system. The X-Rocker Spider 2.1 Wireless with Vibration will blow you away each time there’s an explosion or anything else where the chair becomes interactive. You’ve got to check this one out with the online store www.hayneedle.com. You’re going to love it!

If you’re a die-hard gamer and need to can experience gaming all the time, then check out the Tectac Virtual Reality VR 3D Goggle Glasses. This headset is built to be compatible with the iPhone 6 and 6S and can be adjusted for blurry vision with its resin lens. An entirely awesome tool that allows you to experience Imax features and they back it with a  100% money back guarantee.

The last item to mention is a good set of headphones. What’s the point of investing in a fast computer with all the whistles and bells then not have the ability to hear all the detail with the sound? You can pick up a cool Astro Gaming A50 Wireless with Dolby Sound headset right from AMAZON. Be sure to look for headsets that are compatible with both your gaming system and computer if you plan on using them both.

With these simple yet necessary tools, you’ll find that gaming will become a lot more enjoyable. If you’re like most of us, you want the total experience of what you’re playing. Investing in the right accessories will make your game ventures far more fun.
